In Pictures: Laois Students show off their projects at BT Young Scientist

The BT Young Scientist competition continues today with strong Laois representation.

The LaoisToday team were in the RDS in Dublin on Thursday where Heywood Community School had a total of six projects at the BT Young Scientist this year, with a total of 11 students taking part.

But it wasn’t only Heywood who had Laois students taking part as Cistercian College Roscrea had pupils from Laois displaying their projects – with Eoghan Brennan from Portlaoise showing his project alongside his classmate Jacob as they looked at how the quantity of food eaten can effect the quality of sleep.

6th class students from the Heath were more than enthusiastic to show off their projects.

They even put the LaoisToday team to the test with a quiz about snails.

The BT Young Scientist and Technology Exhibition takes place for four days from Wednesday to Saturday.

Timahoe Primary School are up at the RDS today and will be displaying their projects over on our LaoisToday Snapchat.

Check out photos below of some of the students taking part at the BT Young Scientist.
